Its been really long. Anyways I found A really GOOD novel that pulled me out of my nest lol. I was quite late discovering this but still I would still post this just encase someone out there would like this . Lately Ive been binge reading every work this author has .
so Let me start on this one . apparently this is really the authors most popular work that this got an anime and a manga adaptation. which was the reason I found.l it
Guys Im telling you the chinese Fandom of this novel is really an eye opener, considering that this is BL novel .Yay! finally. good reads should never be discriminated regarding of its contents anyways
This novel tho, when you search for chapters and spoilers it would show different names , some sites I’ve read, they have it called Grandmaster of Demonic cultivation or Founder of Diabolism. They still same tho.
okay so lets start . As always I review books with caveat on it . I spoil A lot so if you are the type that like surprises go straight on the link at the bottom on this.
summary (by exiled rebels)
As the grandmaster who founded the Demonic Sect, Wei WuXian roamed the world in his wanton ways, hated by millions for the chaos he created. In the end, he was backstabbed by his dearest shidi and killed by powerful clans that combined to overpower him. He incarnates into the body of a lunatic who was abandoned by his clan and is later, unwillingly, taken away by a famous cultivator among the clans—Lan WangJi, his archenemy. This marks the start of a thrilling yet hilarious journey of attacking monsters, solving mysteries, and raising children. From the mutual flirtation along the way, Wei WuXian slowly realizes that Lan WangJi, a seemingly haughty and indifferent poker-face, holds more feelings for Wei WuXian than he is letting on.
WuXian was again given a chance when a body was offered to him. So he wakes up 13 years after his death,and learns that he was written down as the most hated person in history. The story progresses from here . Meeting the one man he never thought would act so differently from his past. At the first chapters Wu xian would meet an incident that had forced him to use his infamous prowess (summoning the undead ) what he didn’t expect was that he unconsciously summoned Wen Ning (his ghost general) which pretty much a ringing alarm to those around , since Wen Ning was famous because where ever Wu Xian appears the ghost general follows. This makes them suspicious of him.
Jiang Cheng then appears and would get hit Wu Xian with his whip: Zidian (“purple lightning”) . It’s ability to separate the soul and body of a person who had seized someone else’s body.
This incident enabled him to escape suspicion for a while but one man wasn’t fooled . Guess who ?😂 Then the story flows from there Enjoy reading
Guys really I cant find the right to give justice to this novel, so Im linking you sites and see for yourself , really how just worthy binge reading this
My favorite this was not really a scene ,but the Gusulan Sect headband. (found this on the spoilers thread)
See the founder of the Gusulan Sect ( ML’s clan ) was a monk and was very strict with his actions, which is also part of the reason why the Lan clan has so many Clan Rules. If you watch the anime you can literally see the rules written on the walls of the mountain where the sect resides.
Now the headband tied around them is suppose to symbolize one’s self restraint. Folow the rules and all the self implicated restrictions .
It is only in front the person you love and is determined to spend your life with, that this self restraint is not needed.
So, it is a heavy taboo for anyone besides yourself to even touch your own headband tie, much less tying it on someone else. The only exception to this would be your true love, so the fact that ML tied up Wu Xian with his headband tie and then showed it off, is kind of equivalent to screaming into a megaphone that Wu Xian is the love of his life while naked.
Basically, the headband tie is a super important object that only you and your true love are allowed to touch. If someone else touches it, then it’s a great insult to your honor, integrity, etc. Of course, on this his first life Wu Xian had touched ML’s headband tie quite a few times without knowing this and thought it was just decoration that was part of the clan uniform.
See why I like it. 😂
and of course I might as well this thread.
BTW Like every chinese Novela its quite hard to remember everyone’s name so here you go
